Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Ramey Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2022

Ramey Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2022 is a stunning expression of the Chardonnay varietal, sourced from special vineyard sites in the Russian River Valley, California. This wine is renowned for its depth of flavor, length of finish, and a fine balance between richness and delicacy. The cool climate and low soil vigor produce graceful yet vibrant wines that showcase the region's unique terroir.

The 2022 vintage of Ramey Russian River Valley Chardonnay had an interesting growing season, starting with a very wet winter, followed by a mild summer until a significant heatwave around Labor Day. The winemakers and growers quickly harvested the first wave of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir after the heatwave, and then the temperatures were warm and steady. This allowed the winemakers to pick the grapes based on optimal fruit maturity rather than impending weather. The yields were very close to projections, and the fruit quality was exceptional with well-preserved acids, great color, and good varietal expression.

This wine is known for its aromatic complexity, showcasing notes of lemon zest, green apple, white peach, and floral hints of honeysuckle and jasmine. On the palate, it is rich and textured, with flavors of vanilla, buttered toast, and a subtle minerality that provides a refreshing lift to the wine. The finish is long and satisfying, leaving a lingering impression of sweet spice and toasted hazelnuts. Ramey Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2022 is a perfect wine to pair with roasted chicken, seafood, and creamy pasta dishes.

Critic Ratings

Wine Enthusiast Review - Rated 95:
Both agile and relaxed, this well balanced, vibrant and concentrated wine carries layers of crisp apple, pastry crust and lemon curd on snappy acidity that complements a fairly rich texture and medium body. Its creamy-tangy finish lingers a long time

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 94:
This powerful version offers mouthwatering lemon curd, lime blossom and mandarin orange flavors that show notes of fresh-grated ginger and lemon verbena. Sea salt minerality gains momentum on the finish, where grace notes of toasted green tea, citrus zest and white pepper linger.
